wrinkled olives on tree

    4 responses

bradwin starts with ...
My Olive tree has been bearing fruit for the last 2-3 yrs but at the moment, most (not all) of the fruit has wrinkles. I am not sure why this is and how to prevent for next season. Also, should the non-wrinkled ones just get picked? I have photo's too.

Have you been watering the tree & then stopped? Try watering & see if the tree improves. Yes pick the unwrinkled fruit, suggest you wait to see how watering affects the wrinkled fruit.

I to have experienced lack of water also wrinkles olives, also when the fruit goes past ripe it starts to wrinkle. I have found it is not necessarily bad at this stage just a bit dehydrated like a sultana and can still be used.

Very ripe olives are more likely to go mushy though when pickled. Instead of pickling these very ripe olives, after the brine soak, I bake them in a heavily spiced oil with garlic and seville orange, bottle in the oil.

Best of luck with the home grown olives.

Interestingly, ours all wrinkled with the dry but plumped back up again after a deep watering - twice... Not sure what that does to the quality of the fruit ultimately. Currently preserving this seasons, so soon find out!

Thanks all for the responses, it has been great. The recent 3 day down pour of rain has improved the healthiness of the fruit. Not all the fruit is now good but most of it is. You were very much right in saying that it has been a lack of water. thanks once again.
